New: Best in Mount Pearl Awards

The City of Mount Pearl is home to many amazing people and we want to recognize those who go above and beyond! This year we are introducing a bigger and broader awards ceremony to honour our most outstanding citizens who through their achievements and extraordinary efforts have made exemplary contributions to the community.

Combining both the Citizen of the Year and the Pearl Awards, as well as introducing new award categories, the Best in Mount Pearl Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 to help kick-off our annual City Days celebrations. This event provides us with an opportunity to showcase residents, groups or businesses who “lead the pack”, take risks to innovate, establish new partnerships, question established ways of doing things and pioneer new approaches. The awards will recognize ideas and people that rise above challenges with vision, creativity and teamwork.

Deadline for Nominations: Friday, June 21st
